Blue Lit Gauges

Has anyone tried using a blue film to change the color of the LCD screen on the gauges console?

I was thinking about buying the s7 gauges and then trying to do something with blue film to make the LCD screen match the gauges.

Any ideas?

you should try changing the led's. http://www.rjautoworks.com has different color oem style gauges. they are a little slow at shipping. it took a month to get mine, but it is worth the wait.

here are some of the kits installed
black/white gauges with white led's

silver/black with blue led's

I'm just worried about screwing up the job and needing to buy a new cluster. Is it true that the mileage is stored on the cluster as well? sO I would have to deal with that too if I fried the board.
